My rcp(1) doesn't mention that I'm supposed to read rcmd(3). Even
my rcmd(1) doesn't mention that.
I've no qualms about doing things that might make my system usable for
a time, but I don't expect stumblings blocks to be placed in front of
me when trying to revive it. Even the floppy disks have ftp on them.
Why isn't that part of /rescue ? Why isn't everything that's on the
floppy install disks in the /rescue dir?
